Now Trump Is Being Attacked
For What He Didn´t Tweet About

Investor´s Business Daily, by Staff

Bias: The mainstream press paid little attention to the devastation in Puerto Rico all weekend. Then they noticed that President Trump hadn´t tweeted about it since Thursday. Now that they can attack Trump, they suddenly care. On Monday, headlines everywhere all made the same exact point: "While Trump Tweeted About Sports All Weekend, Puerto Rico Dealt With ´Apocalyptic´ Hurricane Damage" "Trump ignores Puerto Rico´s devastation to tweet about the NFL" "Trump Keeps Tweeting About NFL Protests While Largely Ignoring Puerto Rico" "Can Trump Stop Feuding With NFL Athletes & Pay Attention To Puerto Rico?" "Lawmakers condemn President Trump for silence

Puerto Rico was in sad shape before Hurricane Maria made landfall. It´s too bad the island government agreed with Sharpton and closed down Vieques and thus, the Naval Station at Roosevelt Roads because if RR was till there -it would be a great resource. Oh well, que sera sera.

FEMA is reporting that so far 10,000 federal personal have arrived in Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. They have reopened five airports in PR and 2 in the VI for military and relief planes. Also bringing in literally boatloads of water food and communication equipment into the reopened ports. Just because MSM isn’t reporting it, doesn’t mean it’s not happening.

Most of the immediate help for Americans was provided for them by other Americans, not the government.

Puerto Ricans need to help each other, it is a bit far to send the Cajun Navy to help.

National Guard members as far as Maine have been deployed to Puerto Rico..U.S. Navy has at least one ship offshore. PT has ensured all available resources have been made available to Texas, Florida, and Puerto Rico. What difference would a tweet by PT make?

The Myth That Government
Shutdowns Hurt Republicans
Investor´s Business Daily, by Staff    Original Article

Politics: By the time you read this, the Great Government Shutdown of 2018 could be over. But the prognostications of its impact on the political landscape will no doubt continue. As with every other government shutdown in the past two decades, Republicans will end up getting blamed for it, and pundits— backed up by quickie polls— will declare that it is inflicting maximum harm on the party. What these pundits won´t do is provide any data on the actual political impact from past shutdowns, probably because it would show that, if anything, shutdowns have been a boon to Republicans.

Economy: No question about it — one year into President Trump´s first term, the economy is on a roll, creating wealth, income and jobs for Americans, and building opportunities for the young. It´s a triumph of economic realism over foolish skepticism. Critics so disliked Trump as he entered office last year that they were all but rooting for him to fail. A few headlines tell the tale: "President Trump is about to tank the economy" (TheWeek.com). "Millennials think the Trump economy is going to implode" (Chicago Tribune). "Investors ignoring the risks in Trump´s presidency" (MarketWatch). "Why the Trump Economic Boom

Great Again: Disabled Rejoin Workforce
In Droves As Economy Gains Steam

Jobs: If you want a sign of a growing economy, look at the disability rolls. They´ve been shrinking rapidly of late, as fewer apply for benefits and more disabled return to work. This is very good news. In the aftermath of the last recession, the number of workers who went on the Social Security Disability Insurance program skyrocketed by more than 1 million. It´s clear from the data that this was being driven largely by the lack of good job prospects. Monthly applications for SSDI leapt from an average 182,000 a month in 2007 to 245,000 a month in 2010.

Which Is Worse: Trump´s ´Fake News´

When the Republican National Committee, at the behest of President Trump, announced its "fake news" awards, the mainstream media treated it as an attack on freedom of the press. Even if that concern were legitimate (we seem to recall President Obama attacking Fox News pretty regularly without the mainstream press raising alarms), the list is a damning indictment of how sloppy reporters and editors have gotten in their zeal to attack Trump. Here´s are the "winners" as published by the RNC: 1. The New York Times´ Paul Krugman claimed on the day of President Trump´s historic, landslide victory that the economy would never

Environmentalism: A new study published in the prestigious journal Nature finds that all those global warming doomsday scenarios aren´t credible. Not that you would ever know based on how little coverage this study is getting. The study, published on Thursday, finds that if CO2 in the atmosphere doubled, global temperatures would climb at most by 3.4 degrees Celsius. That´s far below what the UN has been saying for decades, namely that temperatures would rise as much as 4.5 degrees, and possibly up to 6 degrees. Basically, the scientists involved in the Nature study found that the planet is less sensitive to changes

Showdown Over A Gov´t Shutdown —
Blame The Dems, Not The GOP

Shutdown: Republicans don´t have a great track record with government shutdowns. In the past, no matter whose fault it is, the GOP gets blamed by the opposition Democrats and their allies in the mainstream media for any budget shutdown. This time will be no different. The GOP is once again engaged in a game of chicken with the Democrats over the budget. They have until Friday to either extend their budget deadline, or to solve an impasse over the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, also known as the "Dreamers" bill. If not, Democrats have threatened to shut down the

The Uninsured Rate Jumped Last

Health Reform: The number of uninsured shot up by 3.2 million last year. Naturally, Republicans are getting blamed, even though the causes were in place well before President Trump won the election. According to the quarterly Gallup survey, 12.2% of adult Americans were uninsured in Q4 2017. That´s up significantly from the year before, when the uninsured rate was 10.9% — the biggest jump since Gallup started tracking this in 2008. This comes despite a steady decline in unemployment and predictions from the Congressional Budget Office that the number of uninsured would drop by 1 million in 2017. Gallup isn´t the only

Just a few weeks after major tax reform legislation was approved by Congress and signed by President Trump, we are seeing the broad benefits of economic growth for the middle class, blue collar workers and the poor. That is captured in summary fashion in the stock market. The Dow has climbed to a new all-time record, over 26,000 in the past few days. That reflects $7.2 trillion in new wealth added to the economy over the first year of the Trump presidency, broadly shared by everyone with stock ownership, either directly, or through pension plans and retirement savings.

Overregulation: After a number of false starts, Congress is once again seriously looking at reforming the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. But this time, something´s different: Some Senate Democrats may want to help. It´s an opportunity too good to waste. The New York Times reports that a new push to change the CFPB would be the "first major revision of the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act, a signature accomplishment of President Barack Obama that has been deemed ´a disaster´ by President Trump." Whether it counts as an "accomplishment" is certainly open to question, but there´s no doubt the CFPB has been a disaster, especially for

Corporate Responsibility: In his annual letter to corporate CEOs, BlackRock´s Laurence Fink is pushing them to focus not just on profits, but on social responsibility. Given that BlackRock (BLK) manages more than $6 trillion in investments, his views can hold a tremendous amount of sway. Too bad this effort is so badly misguided. In his letter, Fink says that "society is demanding that companies, both public and private, serve a social purpose." As such, he says, "every company must not only deliver financial performance, but also show how it makes a positive contribution to society." He tells CEOs that their corporate strategies

Freeing Iran: In their battle against the oppressive mullahs, Iran´s protesters have one powerful weapon: the internet. Unfortunately, the government knows this and is systematically closing down apps it believes pose a threat, and selectively disrupting internet service. The U.S. should do all it can to keep Iran´s digital window open. The internet has become a formidable weapon in the Iranian people´s fight for freedom. It gives those who oppose Iran´s terror-supporting regime a way to communicate with others, share ideas and even organize opposition. A report out just this Wednesday from the Center for Human Rights in Iran (CHRI) notes that

The public is more upbeat about the direction of the country and the economy, less likely to be looking for a job and less stressed. Yet they´re not giving President Trump much of the credit, the latest IBD/TIPP Poll shows. The January poll finds 35% approve of the job Trump is doing and 58% disapprove — a gap of 23 points, which is unchanged from last month. Trump´s favorability rating is 36%, with 57% saying they have an unfavorable view of the leadership he´s providing — a gap of 21 points. However, the poll also found that 45% now approve of how

How illegal immigrant Dreamers amassed
power to force government shutdown

Democrats called it the Trump shutdown. Republicans labeled it the Schumer shutdown. But in reality, it was the Dreamer shutdown. The recipe for the current congressional gridlock is complex, but at the top of the list of ingredients are the illegal immigrant Dreamers who pushed Democrats to launch the filibuster that sent the government careening into a partial shutdown. It’s a stunning display of political leverage for a group that, at most, numbers several million, can’t vote now, and even under the most generous proposals wouldn’t be able to cast ballots for another decade. Yet they have amassed an extraordinary amount of

It´s no secret that Mitt Romney is, in all likelihood, going to run for a Senate seat in Utah. What´s less clear, however, is why the man who was the 2012 Republican presidential nominee and is now retired and occupying an elder-statesman role in a party torn into warring factions would want to serve as a junior senator. Once elected, Romney would find himself embroiled in day-to-day congressional fights and less free to voice his criticisms of the White House, while losing some of the deference he´s been shown by members of his own party. But listen to any number of Republicans and

Malia Obama, who is studying at Harvard University, has boyfriend! But some black people on Twitter have questioned her choice in men, because Malia´s new homey, Rory Farquharson, is white. (5 tweets) This racism on the part of some in the black community, who are bruddas and sistas to us all, is very sad. Most white people want us to grow together as a community. I just wish everyone of all races felt the same way. Questions for discussion: After years of Obama´s race baiting, President Trump is the first "post-racial" president to follow him.

Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI) questioned President Donald Trump’s new campaign ad saying Democrats “will be complicit in every murder committed by illegal immigrants” if they continued the shutdown. Ryan said, “They are certainly not helping us keep the government open. They are certainly not helping us get to a solution on immigration. When you shut down the government you stop negotiating on immigration reform. They’re complicity with not getting things done.” He added, “I’m not going to comment. I just saw that. I don’t know if that’s necessarily productive. It’s no

The Daily Caller journalist Chuck Ross has some extremely interesting information released today surrounding former top FBI Counterintelligence Agent Peter Strzok and DOJ/FBI liaison attorney Lisa Page which includes a disclosure by top FBI officials that text messages between Strzok and Page have gone missing. (Snip) According to information relayed to Senator Ron Johnson, the period of time the FBI has “lost” is from December 14th, 2016 to May 17th, 2017, the exact day that Special Counsel Robert Mueller was assigned to lead the Russia collusion probe. As CTH has previously outlined the same “small group” inside the DOJ and FBI,

Investigators in both House and Senate were stunned late Friday when, receiving a batch of newly-released texts between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, they also received notice from the bureau that the FBI "failed to preserve" Strzok-Page messages from December 14, 2016 through May 17, 2017. Given the amount of texting that went on between Strzok and Page, who were having an extramarital affair, that probably meant thousands of missing documents. A number of critical events in the Trump-Russia affair occurred between December 2016 and May 2017, including: Conversations between Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn and Russian ambassador Sergey

Adam Schiff, reputedly a champion leaker from the House Intelligence Committee when it came to Russiagate material, suddenly thinks Ignorance is Bliss when it comes to the FISA warrant used to spy on the Trump campaign. Appearing on CNN, he tried to justify keep the 4 page memo that reportedly exposes the individuals who acted as part of a cabal to undermine the Trump campaign with help from NSA spying, and then pushed the “Russia collusion” conspiracy theory as part of the “insurance policy.” Americans are too ignorant, you see.

WASHINGTON – Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) called the government shutdown a “manufactured crisis” created by Democrats who want a permanent Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) fix, which he referred to as a “non-emergency” issue that does not belong in the short-term spending bill to continue federal government operations. “The one non-emergency issue our friends on the other side of the aisle are trying to shoehorn into this discussion doesn’t reach that status of emergency until March. This is pure folly. The American people know so, that´s why in a recent survey a majority said keeping the government open

Calling the Trump administration’s tax reform plan a “middle-class tax increase,” two California lawmakers introduced a bill that would force large companies to fork over half of their expected savings to the state. Assemblymen Kevin McCarty and Phil Ting, both Democrats, introduced Assembly Constitutional Amendment 22, which calls for a 10 percent surcharge on companies with a net earnings over $1 million. The plan could potentially raise billions for the state´s social services programs. “It is unconscionable to force working families to pay the price for tax breaks and loopholes benefiting corporations and wealthy individuals,” Ting said in a statement,

The Senate on Monday was set to hold a successful vote to reopen the federal government, after Senate Democrats agreed to let the bill through even though it doesn´t include immigration language they are seeking. "We will vote today to reopen the government to continue negotiating a global agreement," Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said on the floor. Under the bill up to be called up, the government would be fully funded through Feb. 8, and it would fund the Children´s Health Insurance Program for six years. It would also reopen the government, which has been partially closed since midnight

It has been four months since Megyn Kelly earned the wrath and ire of Jane Fonda for asking the 80-year-old actress about her plastic surgery, and the NBC host is now responding to the backlash. That moment occurred during Kelly´s third episode when she asked the Oscar-winner about what work she had done in the past, which prompted a steely Fonda to stare Kelly down and ask: ´We really want to talk about that now?´ Since then Fonda has complained about the question to a number of outlets, and even mocked Kelly´s question on Today last week during an interview

It’s billions of dollars over budget and seven years behind schedule, and appears to have no plausible way of living up to its goal of getting riders across the state in three hours or less. Welcome to what’s arguably the nation’s largest infrastructure project and California’s biggest boondoggle. The highly hyped bullet train has been a challenge from the start. No one thought it would be technically, financially and politically easy, but the way the project has been mishandled has some Californians fed up and demanding answers.
